Karmapa to Dallas

Karmapa to Dallas: We do not at this time have the date for when His Holiness will visit, but we work towards this (and our goal of building a Tibetan Temple) in everything we do.

Karmapa to Dallas: Big News for Texas and Texans 

On April 19, 2015, during His Holiness Karmapa’s last visit to the US, we presented His Holiness with the plans for a Tibetan Temple that the KTC and Lama Dudjom Dorjee Rinpoche planned to build in Irving.

We were there to ask His Holiness if it was the right thing to do.

The Karmapa replied, saying that he would design a better temple for us, and that he would help us. SARVA MANGALAM! We were speechless.

We are now working towards the goal of hosting His Holiness Karmapa in Dallas. So far, so good!

UPDATE: In July of 2017 Lama Dudjom Dorjee was with His Holiness in a group setting with the Kagyu teachers at KTD. His Holiness told Lama Rinpoche that he had not drawn the plan for the new Gompa yet – it’s coming –

It is a good time to visit us, and connect (or re-connect) with Lama Rinpoche.
